When I was at school, My best friend taught me how to play this fascinating game. Her dad had a really gorgeous set he had been given when working overseas with the Navy, and this was the set which we used!! He would often watch us and make suggestions to us.... We always had a super time, and I am now rather sad that I did not continue with it, as I have forgotten just about all I knew back then. Maybe I could visit one of the clubs which abound up here, and see if it still holds my interest!
My favourite game. I've an original set of tiles I've had for many years. We always played lots of different games when the children were growing up and although I only play on line now, it's nothing like the real thing. However, having said that, you still need to use your brain when matching on-line tiles as there could be several options.
I have played on computer and years ago when I bought a set played a few games. It must be harder than I thought because I know people take lessons. I think as with a deck of cards , there are different games that can be played. Some can be quite strategic I think. I would play again, but would like to keep it light and not play if it was too serious.
I've never played it, but our eldest daughter used too, years ago. It must have been at a friends house I guess. She moved interstate, more than 1/2 her life ago, so I don't think she's played it again since her big move.
